Silverwing was the dragon of Queen Alysanne Targaryen when she visited the Wall two hundred years ago.[1][2] Silverwing also fought in the civil war called the Dance of the Dragons.

History

Queen Alysanne Targaryen grew bored while visiting Winterfell with her husband, King Jaehaerys I Targaryen, so she mounted her dragon Silverwing and flew north to see the Wall, stopping at Queenscrown village on the way.[3][1] Jaehaerys came after her on his own.[2]

At the start of the Dance of the Dragons, Silverwing was one of the semi-wild dragons of Dragonmont on Dragonstone that the blacks tried to master with new dragonriders. Ridden by Ulf White, Silverwing fought in the Battle in the Gullet. Ulf and Hugh Hammer later switched to the greens in the Treasons of Tumbleton, with Silverwing and Vermithor burning the town. Ulf slept through the Second Battle of Tumbleton; Silverwing is said to have roused the dead Vermithor after the battle. Ulf then died from wine poisoned by Ser Hobert Hightower. Lord Unwin Peake offered a thousand golden dragons to any knight of noble birth able to ride Silverwing, but none succeeded.[4]
